Debian Security Advisory DSA 931-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : xpdf
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CAN-2005-3191 CAN-2005-3192 CAN-2005-3193 CVE-2005-3624
CVE-2005-3625 CVE-2005-3626 CVE-2005-3627 CVE-2005-3628
Debian Bug : 342281

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, that can
lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to
the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00-3.8.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-13.4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.01-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.


Upgrade Instructions
